DSS invites EFCC Chair, Bawa for interrogation after suspension

Abdulrasheed Bawa slumps during a speech, hospitalized

The suspended Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdul Rasheed Bawa, has been summoned for questioning by the Department of State Services (DSS).

According to Peter Afunanya, spokesman for the Department of State Services, the invitation is intended to address concerns about ongoing investigations concerning Bawa.

Recall that Creebhills earlier reported that the EFCC chair was suspended indefinitely and was directed to immediately hand over the affairs of his office to the Director, Operations in the Commission, who will oversee the affairs of the Office of the Chairman of the Commission, pending the conclusion of the investigation.

The suspension was announced in a statement by Willie Bassey, director of information, office of the secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), as the suspension followed “weighty allegations of abuse of office levelled against him”.

The statement read:

  • “The Department of State Services (DSS) has invited Mr Abdul Rasheed Bawa, the suspended Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Bawa arrived a few hours ago. The invitation relates to some investigative activities concerning him.”

Bawa happens to be the second head of government agency that President Tinubu has suspended since he assumed office, over allegations of abuse of office against him which the President has directed should be investigated

On June 9, he suspended Godwin Emefiele as the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and ordered an investigation into his activities.

Emefiele has since been in the custody of the DSS “for some investigative reasons”.
